Yet Another Dumb Way to Pass Time (Music Related Again)

Post by mister d » Wed Jun 24, 2020 11:54 am

CURRENT MATCHUP: BSF (2009) vs SHIRLEY (1994-1998)







Alright, I was curious about something but rather than look it up I want to turn it into a question.

Part 1: Pick you favorite STUDIO album of all-time or the one that's most important to you. Don't do historically significant or "without Pet Sounds we wouldn't have ..." or any of those other considerations, just a singular favorite album you would hate to live without. Whenever I feel like there are enough answers to proceed, I will.

(First person to list more than one is banned.)

I'd say it was Achtung Baby! I was 17 when it came out, and I'm guessing age is important because that is the first album I was obsessive about, leading me to follow a band obsessively for almost 30 years (shit). And I still love the album and have probably listened to One more than any other song (that, that could be another topic -- most listened to song in your lifetime)

Correct. Would fuck up Part 2. Live albums will too, I guess, so maybe don't do that. I wish I'd said studio album in the original.

Or @bestalbum95 on twitter.

The standings are a bit behind. The Chronic beat Check Your Head, and is now taking on S&E (currently leading). REM beat out Tori Amos and is waiting for the winner in the championship.

If the Soundtrack to Once More With Feeling (Buffy) is off limits, then I'll go with Flood by They Might Be Giants.

Duff, Giff, and Steve all named albums that were massive for me at one point in my life. Thriller was in the running too, but I've gotta go with this as well, Mr. D.

Really sucks that the Flood live tour is postponed. One of the things I was most looking forward to this Summer (that and Primus doing all of Farewell to Kings live.)

Thanks. Surprising in general or surprising because it’s me? I was thinking of a classic rock album at first, but this record is one of those that still does it for me every single time it pops up on my iTunes. It is one of those records that I can remember exactly where I was the first time I heard it.
